Abrams' high stakes, every second counts pacing gets the best out of franchise star Tom Cruise resulting in easily the series' best pure action installment.

The best of the first three for its nonstop action and sometimes pulse-pounding excitement.

The latest in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Mission: Impossible III is high on intrigue, but a bit too obvious in its construction to be as effecting as it tries to be.

Had a pop artist handled this, the franchise could have had its On Her Majesty's Secret Service; with machines directing machines, however, it's closer to its Live and Let Die

Abrams' installment into an otherwise mediocre trilogy is entertaining.

Without an outsize directorial vision it looks even more like sub-007 than the others did.

...this snappy installment is a marked improvement over John Woo's surprisingly dull sequel, though the set pieces lack the elegance and visual coherence of the Brian de Palma original.

The sad truth is that Ethan will always be better at saving the world than saving his marriage and fans of the first two films are likely to find the agent's journey of the heart an unwelcome distraction

Mr. Abrams, it seems, has chosen to accept his mission. And I'll be darned if he doesn't succeed.

Sit back, and simply enjoy all the spectacular stunt work, chase scenes, f/x, pyrotechnics, gunplay, and comic relief with your brain on idle and a big tub of popcorn in your lap.

Given a story that calls for emotion, Cruise shows the turmoil his character is going through

Not perfect, but it packs plenty of great action, special effects that don't astound but don't detract, a truly good bad guy, and a cool as ever Cruise missile.

Suri's daddy elevates Impossible franchise ...

La cinta se siente fresca y actual, lo que le da nueva vida a una franquicia que parecía haberse agotado con tan sólo dos entregas.
| Original Score: 3/4

... the best-told Mission: Impossible adventure yet.

Tom is a superhero. His superpower is INTENSITY, for which there is apparently no kryptonite.

Time Out

There are plentiful perilous countdowns, most of the set-pieces are impressively mounted and, in its own silly way, the pay-off offers a glancing blow at US foreign policy. Relatable? No. But quite fun.

The summer's first action epic does exactly what it's supposed to do, more clearly than M:i:I, and more likeably than M:i:II.
